Welcome to my blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!

Look What I Won!

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
Well, I sure am feeling lucky! I guess I must be on a winning streak, as yesterday I received an e-mail message from Nancy of Nancy's Daily Dish saying she had a surprise for me over at her blog.  I anxiously stopped over for a visit, and was shocked and surprised to learn that I had won my choice of pillows compliments of Sally at Word Garden!   First of all, I couldn't believe that I won, and secondly, I had a hard time deciding which pillow to choose, as they all were so gorgeous! If you visit Sally's Etsy shop, you will see what I mean!  She has some amazing French inspired pillows, that are oh, so me, and so very tres chic!

So, this is the pillow that I chose!  As you probably know, I adore all things French, and especially love the Eiffel Tower!  I have several thru out our home, so this pillow will be the perfect addition to our decor!  I can't wait to receive it!  When I do, I will be sure to show you where I decide to put it!

A big thank you to both Nancy and Sally for such a generous gift!  I am so looking forward to receiving it!!

Hope you ladies enjoy the rest of your day.  We are getting closer to garage saling this weekend!  I haven't gotten a chance to get to many these last few weeks, so I hope I'm not disappointed, since it's the Labor Day weekend and maybe not as many sales going on!  But you never know...........!

Cool pillow!
Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see your cast iron bird bath on a chair!
I was going to get one of them, but if they break, too, I'll stick with my chair.
Hugs- Tete
